Taking time off from his busy schedule, globally renowned musician Ed Sheeran spoke about the time he spent in New Zealand.

In chat with BBC Radio One, Sheeran explained how he and Peter Jackson flew around one of the director’s World War 1 planes, which are displayed at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Center.

“Peter Jackson, the guy that does the Lord of the Rings films, he collects World War I planes,” Sheeran revealed.

“And he strapped me to the front of one of them standing up and then flew me around. He has got a load of them. He has got a museum that has them all in. That was in May or June.”

During his trip, the British pop star also experienced the ever popular Kiwi bungee jump with the Lord of the Rings director and his daughter Katie Jackson, despite suffering from a fear of heights.

“I was in Queenstown and they said: ‘Shall we go on a bungy jump?’ and I thought I guess when in Rome, but I’m terrified of heights,” he said.

“I thought, yeah, I’m gonna do it to see if it cures my fear of heights and for the next month I had dreams of just falling.

“I did it and it was horrible. The guys that do it are like 17 or 18 and they mess with you a little bit. They grab you and pretend to push you over. That is the scariest thing I did.”
